We make learning Slovenian fun and easy

Learning Slovenian - Think Slovenia

In the last 10 years we have helped over 100 people learning Slovenian, making Think Slovenia amongst the most experienced teachers of Slovene language for foreigners in the world!


We offer predominantly one to one tuition, with the content, intensity and duration of courses designed around you. We also work with groups and from time to time we can also put together small groups of students.


Lessons can be organised and hosted in the Ljubljana region and we can occasionally offer intensive courses in the London region of the UK. We also offer distance learning options (setting and correcting exercises over email with phone support). Many of our students have successfully combined distance learning with tuition in Slovenia & the UK to create a bespoke course to suit their needs and movements between the two countries.


We have experience of teaching many different age groups and levels - from running a Slovenian language school for kids in London to running intensive immersion courses in Ljubljana for foreign University researchers.


All teaching is with Slovene native speakers fluent in English, with several years’ experience in language teaching and with the imagination to make learning Slovenian fun!

Get by in Slovene

Get by in Slovene is our most popular course. It teaches basic conversational Slovene and is aimed at all those who have ever had trouble making themselves understood when on holiday in Slovenia, or who would like to be able to talk with Slovene friends,  relatives or neighbours. The first ten hours of tuition usually cover essential topics (such as greetings) and simple, practical dialogues (such as ordering in restaurants). The next ten hours and beyond aim to consolidate a basic knowledge of Slovene grammar and vocabulary and slowly expand it, to give experience of a wider range of real life situations relevant to Slovenia today. The course is available on a one-to-one basis in London or Ljubljana and from time to time there are also group sessions held in London.


Immersion Courses in Slovenia

The most effective way of learning a foreign language – not least learning Slovenian – is to immerse yourself in it in the country where it is spoken. We organise courses in Ljubljana that combine intensive teaching for four to six hours a day. We have also organised less intensive courses in Slovenia for people who are going to see family or friends and want to take advantage of their time there to do an hour or two of Slovene lessons every day.


Slovene for property owners

This useful course is tailor-made for people who have bought property in Slovenia and aims to teach them practical vocabulary and dialogues that will help them with renovating & managing their property – but also general language skills which will help getting to know new neighbours. Learning Slovenian is highly recommended for property owners!


Business Slovene

Learning some Slovenian is not only a sign of respect for business associates in Slovenia, but shows that you are serious in your dealings with them – as all Slovenes understand the effort required to learn it. Business Slovene focuses on basic commercial vocabulary and dialogues and is customised to the needs of your particular business. It also teaches the skills necessary for reading and writing in Slovene. Many of the people who take this course are preparing for an extended business trip to Slovenia and find it particularly effective when combined with a commercial briefing about the country.
